Klemens and I have been at the EclipseCon Europe in Ludwigsburg and got the chance to demo sharky there. When we came there and saw the big room our talk was assigned to, i became speechless. It wasn’t a room, but rather a hall. Really impressive. Never talked on such a big stage.
The talk was really nice; in fact it was the funniest talk i have ever had. You already know that sharky is a big wild one with his own mind. So this nasty fish refused to follow some of our commands. For instance sharky decided to fly higher and higher without any interest to get back down to us. (Well, it was not sharky’s fault. A loose cable blocked the diving mode). So i sent out Klemens to catch sharky again 😀 But how to catch a sharky that is flying in a height of 10 meters? Well, i still don’t know, but ask Klemens because he managed.
At the end, we could demo all things we had planned to do. And it seemed that the attendees really loved sharky and his little accidental misbehaviour.
For me it was one of the talks i will never forget. Was sooo much fun and a lot things happened to laugh about. Two people made a movie about the talk and i am looking forward to their release…
Here you can see a little movie by Benjamin Cabe. Jonas Helmig was volunteer to rc sharky by a 3D-sensor.

Thanks a lot to Jelena from foundation. She helped a lot preparing things…
